BLESS - Jamie Bennett (Crown Ruler)
Shout outs to Sophie McAlister for the incredible set she played for us in October. She went everywhere, and we followed every step of the way. Our November BLESS is with someone who we've been wanting to bring up for a good while and a huge reason we are able to do what we do. The man Jamie Bennett is coming to town!
Without a doubt, Mr Bennett is one of the hardest working and most forward-thinking minds in music across Australia. The impact he has had on music and culture as a DJ, promoter, label owner, booker and lover of all things music is something special. His work behind Crown Ruler has been integral for the growth of the Australian music scene as he has spent the best part of twenty years running parties, collaborating with RBMA, booking for a number of venues and being behind some incredible artists gracing our shores through single showcases or festivals like Freedom Time. He has been behind bringing the likes of Larry Heard, Theo Parrish, Floating Points, Roy Ayers and DJ Harvey to the country just to name a few.
He may do much of his work behind the scenes but don't be fooled Jamie's rekkid crates are also as deep as they come and when he gets behind the wheels of steel he can't help but make the party move. With countless years devoted to digging he has collected some of the hottest fire you can pack in a bag. His broad range allows him to take you on a trip through genres and his time in the game has made him one of the humble greats this country has on offer in the booth. A true hero in the game, even if he won't admit it.
